Nouvelle Vague is one of the bands that I've come across recently whom I absolutely enjoyed from the word 'go'! This French-based cover band have a very interesting take on the music they cover. The band takes rock and pop songs from the 60's and 70's and puts their own twist to each song by giving it a very South Americna bossa nova groove to it. They've covered songs such as Master and Servant by Depeche Mode, Human Fly by The Cramps, Dancing with Myself by Billy Idol and even Uncovered by Queens of the Stone Age.
The band played at the opening of the Le Meridien Hotel in Gurgaon this evening. They also happen to have written the music that plays in all Le Meridien Hotels world wide. Overall, this was a high-energy gig that had everyone dancing away from the time the first note was played.
The band has been founded by by musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux who've worked with numerous vocalists and musicians over the years to breathe new life into songs. Here are some (meaning 'quite a lot') pictures from the gig.
